BIG-IP GTM(all modules)

Opened: Sep 23, 2014
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

DNS search domain list appears to be ignored.

Impact

DNS resolve requests might fail.

Conditions

This occurs when there are DNS domains configured for the system searches for local domain lookups, to resolve local host names.

Workaround

Manually update number-of-dots, ndots:value For example: 1) remount usr as writeable: remount -o rw,remount /usr 2) edit the dns.tmpl file's ndots: value: sed -i s/ndots:0/ndots:1/ /defaults/config/templates/dns.tmpl 3) verify that the edit took place: grep ndots /defaults/config/tempaltes.dns.tmpl 4) edit /etc/resolv.conf's ndots values by hand or use sed sed -i s/ndots:0/ndots:1/ /etc/resolv.conf The system should behave as expected with respect to ndots values now.

Fix Information

None
